The Line On The Reflective PVC Surface

When you check the some of reflective items carefully, you will find there is a line on the surface of these slap warp or badge etc. sometimes it is a very thick one and sometimes it is a very thin line. like the above photo. The left is a 3M one and the right is a Reflexite material.

Reflective vinyl raw material come in different size, like USA material comes in a roll (for example, 3M material is in size of 45.7cmX100meter) while China made material comes in a sheet (45X45cm). But it is the same that Every 23cm on the surface for the raw material, there will be a line.  This is not the quality problem. Because the size of the moulding which produce the reflective vinyl is in about 23X23cm. So it will not possible to avoid this line when you produce the items with size more than 23cm.

Normally the client will accept it.  because I think we mainly want to use its safety function instead of its looking. but it will be better to explain this point to the client in advance.
